Bateau Bay Beach {Sundays in my city}

April 16, 2017

Bateau Bay beach is a 5 minute drive from my place. It’s a small beach, slightly secluded, with a national park encompassing it. In summer, it does get pretty packed but usually, going after work means most of the people have left. I like the seclusion but being small, sometimes it means that you can hear people around you. It’s still a nice place to go around twilight and soak up the solitude. There is nothing more soothing than being at…

Norah Head Lighthouse {Sundays in my city}

March 5, 2017

Norah Head is a headland on the Central Coast, about 120 minutes north of Sydney’s CBD. Norah Head Lighthouse is till active today and is also open for tours. The lightkeeper’s cottages have been turned into a bread-and-breakfast where people can stay. It’s also a popular spot for weddings and functions which makes sense given the view. There is also a rugged-looking beach and depending on the weather, you could also fish at Norah Head.       It’s a lovely day…

About a 10-minute drive from where I live, is Long Jetty Wharf. It’s named this because it three long jetties that span out over Tuggerah Lakes. There is a lovely path for bicycles and walkers…

This post is brought to you by Nuffnang and We Will Rock You On hump day this week, I had the pleasure of going to watch a musical — We Will Rock You. After being offered the chance to review the show, I went along to it with a friend from my old workplace. Spontaneous plans are always great! Having never been to the Lyric Theatre before, I was duly impressed by the venue. I was excited by the seats…

When an overnight hike almost killed me

March 31, 2016

Over the long weekend, I finally went on an overnight hike — my first since the Overland track in early 2015. Sure, I was a bit scarred back then but when I did try and get to some overnight hikes, uni or else other stuff got in the way. Honest. For those who are a bit uncertain, an overnight hike is one where you hike out to the camping spot carrying all your gear, set up camp for the night…
